NegOr vying for DILG award

Negros Oriental is vying for the regional Gawad Pamana ng Lahi Award of the Department of Interior and Local Government, its assistant provincial director, Farah Gentuya, said.

She said the province has complied with all of the award indicators, like the Local Governance Performance Management System, where it garnered an overall performance index of 4.45 or “a very good performance”.

It is also compliant with the full disclosure policy, has no adverse reports from the Commission on Audit, and has several innovations that won for itself the Seal of Good Housekeeping award, Gentuya said.
